      Lovely Building and Room at the Right Price

      I have to declare an interest as I know the owner. That said I am being as honest as possible. The Guesthouse is slightly out of the centre but is still only 400 yards from the night market and a short walk to the riverside. On a map look for the local Governors office and the GH is just opposite.

      Should you be a light sleeper I suggest you get a room at the back as there is some road noise. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and the little pho shop two doors down stays open late and sells cold beer.

      The GH itself is well built and nicely finished the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are a good size with quality fittings and excellent showers with plenty of hot water and a good pressure. he airconditioning is effective and modern so fairly quiet. Flat screen TV on the wall has more than 40 channels inc BBC world and CNN. I like the fact that they have bedside lights so that you do not have to get up to turn the lights out!

      Breakfast iserved in the lobby nd is the usual Lao fare. Fried Eggs or Omlette Bread or Croissant butter and Jam. Plate of fruit and tea or coffee. The staff are helpful and attentive although some do not have much English.

      ... t assist the beggars (it even says so in the Lonely Planet book) but at the same time we understood the basic need for food, and here were children watching us consume it in a restaurant.

      They hovered for a few moments and then left us as they realised we were not going to part with a pizza we were already sharing between the two of us. Other people were far more forgiving and gave them pieces of theirs, also ordering fruit drinks and mangoes at a local vendor. Damned ...

      ... But they are not the (communist) government, nor are they the entrepreneurs making a mint by happening to be in the right place at the right time.

      At the moment Muang Ngoi, our favourite place on Earth, is a pretty good representation of some sort of middle ground. Only (currently) reachable by river it is spared the worst excesses of inequality. But even Muang Ngoi is not perfect and actually illustrates the ridiculousness of market forces. Six years ago when ...

      To get to Vientiane we needed to travel by bus again. Although a shorter and not so windy road it was still not comfortable. They were cramming even more people into this bus by folding out aisle seats so there was no walking aisle just lots of seats. They didn't strap our backpacks to the roof either. Instead they took up the whole back row of seats, limiting person space even more. Only a couple kms down the road the driver stopped and a local jumped onto the bus. ...

Przemknęliśmy przez drogę pokrytą piaskiem i przez pola miejscowych farmerów aby dostać się do wejścia jasniki. Owi nastolatkowie oprowadzili nas po niej, musieliśmy przejść przez kilka małych mostków zrobionych z jednej długiej deski luźno położonej na skałach oraz przez wodę na dnie jaskini ...

      ... morning ridding ourselves of the slightly fuzzy heads from the previous night's vin rouge at iBeam, and the prospect of hailing a tuk tuk, having a fight about what was a "good price for me, good price for you" the dusty journey there and back, and the huge time hole it would punch into our Sunday saw the previous days enthusiasm waning. A shout from yonder, Bear was outside with this month's bills. He's a pretty switched on guy with ...
